Chloe Grace Moretz, Katy Perry, And More Are Best Dressed At 2013 People's Choice Awards

Here we go, y'all! Tonight's People's Choice Awards officially kicks off the 2013 awards shows season, a season of evening gowns, borrowed baubles, and the BEST clutch game. From Katy Perry to Jennifer Lawrence to our Awkward. girl Ashley Rickards, when the PYTs of movies, music, AND television come together for one night of merry-making and crystal award-doling, it's no easy task to whittle them down into a Best Dressed List. Still, we tried. Now, without more ado, here are our favorite People's Choice Awards looks!

CHLOE GRACE MORETZ IN SIMONE ROCHA

Chloe Grace Moretz was one of the first starlettes to grace the PCA red carpet, and BOY, was she a tough act to follow! The Carrie actress was an absolute vision of fashion-forward youth in this neon yellow Simone Rocha dress. Shorter than knee-length but not quite a mini, the look was easy, fun, and age-appropriate paired with fresh-faced, peachy cheeks and loose half-up half-down hair.

JENNIFER LAWRENCE IN MAISON VALENTINO

Jennifer Lawrence didn't just win big on stage tonight. Her Maison Valentino couture dress was a bit of a risky move — not everyone can pull off straight-from-the-disco-era realness — but we really think it worked for the Hunger Games star. The draped peek-a-boo skirt, the shimmering embellishments, the subtle sheer neckline. She killed it.

ASHLEY RICKARDS

Can we get a round of applause for our girl Ashley Rickards? Our favorite Awkward. girl really turned it out on the PCA red carpet tonight in this pale blush floor-length gown. And we're not just saying this because she's an MTV girl! Rickards nailed the look by keeping her beauty steez as delicate and subdued as the dress itself, with a color palette markedly close to her own skintone and her hair in soft waves to complement the daintily intricate Art Deco geometrics of the gown.

THE WANTED IN FIVE SHADES OF GRAY

YOWZA! For whatever reason, it's actually pretty rare that dudes, let alone a whole crew of them, wind up on our Best Dressed lists, but The Wanted is no ordinary set of guys. Part of the latest wave of boy bands, The Wanted consistently shows up at events in the slickest, most swoon-worthy threads, and their Five Shades of Gray group look tonight was no expection.

TAYLOR SWIFT IN RALPH LAUREN

Taylor Swift really took the plunge *ba dum TSH* on the red carpet tonight. The "I Knew You Were Trouble." singer may not have strayed from her white/red/gold dress comfort zone, but she DID opt for a look we haven't really seen from her before: a deeeeeep plunging neckline. A red lip would have been a little too vampy for the daring décolletage, so T. Swizzle wore her lips in a light nude and pulled her hair up in a messy chignon situation. Well played, Tay.

MAE WHITMAN

We have a massive collective girl crush on Mae Whitman, not just because of our shared love of Tim Riggins, but also The Perks of Being a Wallflower and ALSO Parenthood. None of those things help her get on this list, though. Mae Whitman makes our 2013 PCA best dressed because girl knows how to work a step-and-repeat. I mean, HAI EVERYONE, are you seeing how interesting the cut of this dress is? A stealth plunging neck + mega-tapered waist + extra-long flared skirt panels?? #dreamdress

KATHRYN NEWTON IN CHANEL

Our biggest dark horse of the night? Hands down, Kathryn Newton. Not (yet!) part of the ever-growing list of Young Hollywood's style juggernauts, the Gary Unmarried actress really surprised us, bringing out the big guns tonight wearing head-to-toe Chanel. The pastel blue frock is sweet and feminine, but it's the unexpected pairing of this dress with those chunky metallic gold platform wedges that's really sealing the deal for us.

EMMA WATSON IN PETER PILOTTO

If there's a Best Dressed list to be made, chances are Emma Watson is on it. At just 22, the Perks of Being a Wallflower actress makes dressing for any and all of life's events from grocery shopping to getting on stage to accept awards look like a snap. Tonight, she went for a bright, vaguely sporty Peter Pilotto dress with a laser cut leathery peplum, cut outs all over the bodice, and a notably shortened hem.

KATY PERRY IN MAISON VALENTINO

Finally, there's Katy Perry in Maison Valentino for fall/winter 2012. We don't like to pick absolute favorites, but if we really had to, this one was probably it. With her hair woven into a braided updo, topped off with a spiked headband and her dress long-sleeved, dark, and floral, the look gave us strong gothic milkmaid vibes. It sounds totally whackadoo on paper but seeing it realized and executed so well on KP, we wouldn't hesitate to rep this on the daily.
